100% Sémillon Location.; Maule Valley , 187 m above sea level.

Bright yellow colour with golden highlights. Ripe lemon and pear fruit flavours with well integrated subtle oak notes, extremely well structured and complex. Just hitting it's stride, with superb acidity and breadth, this is a wine that can (and should) go the distance. 

Granito is a micro-terroir in a granitic soil which is more than 120 million years old. They are old vines with deep roots. It is minerality expressed in the bottle. This Semillon is from Block 1 Butuco’s vineyard, Maule’s Dry coastal area, 30km from the Pacific Ocean and 187 meters above sea level. It is product of old vines planted in the 1940’s, which did not receive irrigation. It is hand harvested in the middle of March. Grapes are pressed in a vertical press, followed by barrel fermentation and then the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels 

Enjoy with sushi, white meats and antipasti.
